Jon Binney, owner of Elm Street Market, talks about his experience with a recent robbery at his Keene convenience store. A 22-year-old has been charged with armed robbery in that incident.
Lisa Bearson says her store, Beaver Street Market in Keene, has been robbed four times in the past five years. “It’s scary,” she says, “I’ve had my hair stand up on end just seeing somebody walk through the door (who looks like a threat).”
High Street market clerk Ned Braley talks about the spate of armed robberies in the region.

It was about 3 o’clock on a mid-November Sunday afternoon on the east side of Keene. Jon Binney’s grandchildren were playing nearby, wandering in and out of Elm City Market. His wife was working behind the counter and he was upstairs.
That’s when a man with an obvious fake beard entered the neighborhood convenience store that Binney and his wife own. Binney says the customer brought an item to the counter, then flashed a knife at Binney’s wife.
